Thats a very vast definition of "great." That makes for a lot of "great" players.
Lets put it in another perspective.
If Quick is just a "great" player, that would make Price just a "good" goalie and not a franchise one like he has been tagged.
Saying Scuderi is a "great" players would put Gorges in the "great" category despite being just good.
Brown is a very good player not a great player. Him being a great player would indicate Desharnais, Cole and Pacioretty are great. On the contrary, this would also put these guys are par with Kopitar which isnt even close to reality.
Their is a huge separation between franchise player, or superstar, star or even great and good players.
